Q Exactive Tutorial videos

Over the last couple of years I've assembled a few tutorial videos for building methods with the Q Exactive.  These videos are kind of rough as I'm no professional video maker, and I haven't tried really hard to make them nice (notice "rough draft" in most of the titles) but people seem to have found them useful.  As with anything I write or upload to this site, keep in mind that this is not official material produced, branded or authorized by my employer (though things like this are rough drafts of things that should be coming!)  These methods are not perfect and are really just here to help you get going.

In the case of any video you see on Vimeo, definitely make sure that "HD Mode is ON" appears on the video or it isn't going to look very good.

  1. Why do you used the NCE for the charge state in the AIF triggered neutral loss video?

    1. Emily,
      When I made these videos NCE was the only option that could be used. This has been improved since. I should put a note in...
